    Is is worth me carrying on with A2 bio and chem even though i didn't get good grades, or should i have just resat the whole yr??
    But wouldn't that decrease my chances of gettin into uni to study pharmacy?

    I think it depends if you think that you can cope with resitting the previous modules whilst still studying the new modules. Biology and Chemistry build on the work done at AS, so revising AS will help with your A2 work

    Also consider the breakdown of the marks - sometimes it is just 1 componant that will have let you down slightly. Also consider whether you can cope with the worklaod - maybe slightly easier if you're intending to carry over any coursework marks. Think about the amount of work from your other subjects and any resits that will be involved in those.

    What grades did you get, and what grades do you need for pharmacy? If you think you can get your grades up this year with resits, while doing all the A2 work to a high standard at the same time, go for it. Otherwise, find out if unis will accept resit candidates for pharmacy and repeat the year.
